Compagnie Hervé Koubi
This is a past event. Saturday, March 2 at 8:00pm
Newmark Theatre 1111 SW Broadway, Portland, OR, 97205
Selling out all three performances during its White Bird Uncaged debut in 2016, Compagnie Hervé Koubi returns with 13 male street dancers from Algeria and Morocco to perform Koubi’s newest work The Barbarian Nights or The First Dawns of the World. With their virile sensuality and breathtaking energy, wearing headgear design inspired by Swarovski, the dancers evoke the humanity of the early “barbarians” of the Mediterranean basin, whirling their dark skirts and moving like devrishes with stunning fluidity against a musical background of Wagner, Mozart and Fauré mixed with traditional Algerian melodies.
